Technical Difficulties

My apologies for not posting for so long, but almost two weeks ago my computer decided to implode and I just got it back from the Geek Squad last night after 12 days - 12!  Not sure what they do in the back room at Best Buy, but I suspect it has more to do with playing computer games and less to do with actually repairing computers.  Although I must say I am delighted that so far my computer has not decided to spontaneously restart itself and it is remarkably quiet... maybe too quiet.

I may not have been blogging, but I have been sewing and now it's time for show and tell.

Remember this adorable Christmas present from my mother?

 
It's a miniature quilt rack that holds 6 inch quilts.  So cute!  After Christmas I didn't want to pack it away so I made this as a Valentine's Day gift for myself...


And then there was the miniature tree that I made for spring...


It seemed to work pretty well for summer so I left it out, but now that fall is here I thought it was time for a change.  So...


Ta da!  2 inch maple leaf blocks!  I paper pieced the blocks for accuracy and this time I got smart and used a knife edge for the little quilt instead of struggling to bind something so small.  This little quilt makes me think of blowing leaves and clear blue skies and crisp apples and spicy pumpkin pie.  All that from a 6" quilt...

Happy Fall!
